    I’m going to hold judgement on that until I see it years from now and watch it without these big breaks in between. I’m interested in getting my kids perspective too, if they like it.

    With the runtimes, is it really that much different than 10 episodes? Maybe an hour or two? I think it’s worth the sacrifice, regardless, because it’s getting to the 7 years of storytelling craftsmanship, we deserved to see the Cleganebowl and it was over quick but it was nothing w/o the build up.

    Vary’s finally took a stand, I liked it. He saw the opportunity to do the right thing and took a risk that Tyrion may not tell Dany because he too has seen Dany’s tendencies. Confirmed he actually wasn’t slimy like Littlefinger.

    Of course it was crazy. Same with Melissindei getting captured.

    Simply? The world is the size of the UK?

    I’m just puzzled why someone would see that and choose to highlight this?

    I've become too casual a fan to dive much into the "rushed" / character motivations / other recent complaints. But I will say this - the entire show has become bizarrely similar to my GI Joe battles.

    After dinner and bath, I'd spend an hour setting up back story, dialogue, and other intricacies for the figures. Then my mom would tell me I had to go to sleep in like ten minutes, so I'd have to finish the battle real quick.

    As for the main characters... Arya is awesome, Sansa is smart. Let them run shit and the other mains can kill each other.

    Just give me a spinoff where Davos and Bronn just hang out and chat. Any time those two were on screen, the show was exponentially better.

    After that episode I think I need to make an Arya up up down down meme for her too.

    I think it was pretty obvious she was going to snap.. not sure why people are so pissed off and disappointed in the show,...

    It has been fan fiction since they passed up GRR martins books.. I am sure a lot of the same stuff that happens in the show will happen in the books.. but I actually dont think its that bad of a final season.. its not perfect. But its not bad... new star wars movies are bad... this is good.

    Have you seen the series from the beginning?

    Theres a lot to absorb...it’s understandable if you don’t remember stuff. You should rewatch that character development from the beginning.

    I knew she would likely snap when she burned samwells family and started trying to big boy John snow in season 7

    I knew for sure she would snap when John snow stopped giving her the D this season.

    Agreed.

    Her visions in the house of undying in season 2 were a clue for sure. We always knew she would blast kings landing with her dragons on some level

    I don't think anything was going to satisfy you.

    You understand my previous posts were from my friend and not me? I’ve mostly enjoyed this season.
